For the second time this month, there's word the Nets are interested in a certain big man. Earlier, Yahoo's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Nets were so "intrigued" by Josh McRoberts they might commit to him. Now, ESPN's Andy Katz writes it's DeVon Hardin of Cal: "There is definite interest from New Jersey at No. 17." Hardin wants a top 20 guarantee or it's back to Berkeley. Jonathan Givony of Draft Express says while the Nets like him, "they are not going to guarantee him at #17".
